Beautiful Stockholm is spread across 14 islands between Lake Maler and the Baltic. The red, orange and cream buildings of its medieval old town shimmer against the startlingly blue water. More natural beauty awaits at remote Dalarna: deep forests, intensely green countryside and Sweden's highest waterfall. You may also see the spectacular mountain scenery around Lake Fremund. Visit idyllic Mariefred on Lake Malaven, dominated by fairytale Gripsholm Castle; the scenic Skagerrak coastline and the famous port of Gothenburg.
